Sheriff: Keep radio volume low when driving

Pumping up the volume to your favorite music may not only leave you deaf, but it could put motorists in dangerous situations, Sheriff Bob Alford wrote in his "Traffic Tip Thursday" report.

Loud sounds inside a vehicle can leave a motorist unable to hear car horns, emergency vehicles or motorcycles coming up behind you, Alford wrote.

"Make sure you can still hear the sounds of the road – often they will be your only warning of an impending situation," Alford wrote.
